PS4 Hard Drive Sizes.

24 replies 8304 views Edited Feb 21, 2013

I expect them to be at least one terabyte drives and be proprietary.

Looks like the ps4 will be using the internet ALOT so yes, 1000GB+ but doubt it since they wanna keep price down.

I kinda feel like waiting to get a PS4 due to the likehood of bigger hard drive consoles being released later...maybe. but a 1TB hard drive to start would be fantastic!

Built in HDD? That's the smartest idea since MS and their Xbox only HDD's.

Proprietary hardware costs STUPID amounts of money for development and retail sales.... 

 

Thats just stupid.

 

 

its obvious the PS4 is going to use laptop hard drives.... the entire console is built off of PC architecture.

 

This will keep overall costs down because wholesale prices of PC hard drives are stupid cheap...

The built in memory is the 8 GB RAM. It should still have a hard drive.

I am hoping we can use external hard drives (not for just backing up, but to store and retrieve game data).
